Oh look something that is twice the number of something else. Maybe we should use that bigger number if we ever need to use two of the smaller number. GENIUS.

Seriously. So fucking what.

I don't really see the big deal with even caring. 360 = 2pi. So hard to remember. All it does is change the fractions you would use in an equation. It's still the same fucking answer. And if tau is so much easier to use how come people haven't been taught that in the past?

Personally, from the point of view of teaching kids, I think Pi is easier. You learn about circles and shit at an early age. If you want to keep going and learn more about maths you should already have an understanding of things already taught to you.

Why change what you have already been taught? Surely it's easier to teach something using things that you already know than to have to learn something new just to make it "easier".

What would have to happen to make it work? Start teaching kids about circles but instead of using pi use tau. But teaching kids about circles using tau would make it so much more difficult.
